Overview

You’ve fixed the hazards, provided better equipment, and enforced procedures. Now, how can you further improve safety? In the past, organizations have focused on improving safety by addressing the work environment.

Fixing hazards, providing better tools and equipment, and developing and enforcing adequate procedures are all approaches that, understandably, have worked well at improving safety. But many organizations have reached a plateau, finding that relying primarily on these approaches without taking a more comprehensive view of safety produces only marginal gains.

Organizations also need to ensure their culture supports safety. The safety culture includes patterns of behavior, perceptions, values, and expectations, including how safe behavior is identified, enabled, promoted, and reinforced. Workplace safety training is almost effective when it is part of a comprehensive program that actively engages employees across all levels of the organization to promote a culture of safety.

This workshop will highlight the importance of training that focuses on the individual and system factors that influence safe and risky behavior, the principles of behavior and person-based psychology, hazard recognition and human error reduction, principles of safety leadership, and components of a successful employee involvement process to help organizations achieve an ideal safety culture.

Designing jobs to improve safety performance and reduce human error, the importance of error identification and opportunities for correction before they lead to injury or other negative outcomes will also be detailed.

In this 4-hour intensive training session, you’ll learn:

  • The components of an ideal safety culture and individual and organizational practices that support an ideal safety culture,
  • How to use principles of Person and Behavior-Based Safety, Human Factors Engineering, and Human and Organizational Performance, to build an ideal safety culture,
  • How to describe leadership’s role in building an ideal safety culture, and
  • How common safety culture assessment tools, including surveys, focus group interviews, safety systems assessments, and leadership behavior assessments can be used to identify and drive continuous improvement opportunities and to guide and focus organizational training.
